- Turn off the ignition. Remove the key from the ignition. BMWs are very sensitive to voltage, and the BMW 3-Series is no exception. To avoid electrical problems, start by removing the key from the ignition.
- Open the hood. Locate the hood release underneath the dash. Pull the lever until you hear the hood pop open. Next, you need to release the hood safety latch at the front of the hood.
- Locate the terminals where you can jump-start your BMW 3-Series. They are on the passenger side of the engine.
- Connect Positive; attach the red (positive) cable to the positive jump start terminal. Using another car to jump-start your BMW 3-Series, you will connect the red clamp.
- Connect the black (negative) cable to the ground post, which is the negative terminal.
